SonicXTC releases Ring Modulator 101, a fresh new VST effect for Windows, free for download.
The freeware Ring Modulator 101 is a re-creation of a classic effects chain featuring a vintage ring modulator. However, unless you are handy with a soldering iron, have access to an old transistor ring modulator, an old dual channel tube amp, an old tube echo unit, a 2-pole ladder filter, and an old chorus/flanger pedal, you will not have much luck capturing the tone of the Ring Modulator 101.
Ring Modulators are far more useful than copying science fiction sounds. While it may be fun to copy the alien sounds from a classic Sci-Fi movie, ring modulation is almost a form of additive synthesis with boundless potential. RM 101’s sound can range from piercing, aggressive, raw to sublime and ethereal. RM 101 is designed to offer a taste of the possibilities available in its big brother ARM 101. In closing, most folks do not know that ring modulation is a classic underground dance music tool that has for years given old beat machines, turntables and synthesizers the grit and “edge” to cut through a mix and get the crowd moving. Ring Mods are not just for guitarists!
